Goldminer Paavo tells shortly the history of Lappish gold and also a little bit about the geological background of the goldfields. Then we take the rubber gloves and go to the pit to dig sand and stones to the sluice-box with the shovels. After working, the contents of the riffles will be panned by goldminer. We learn how to pan gold. If we are lucky, we’ll get gold nuggets and Lappish gemstones. After that professional demonsration we will continue by ourselves until to next noon. We will put up a Tentsile tree tent, cook dinner from local, fresh ingredients and sleep under the golden midnight sun.
All the gold you will find,you can keep!
